Alarming Update

September 30th, 2020

Not seen at practice today.

UPDATED: 12:04 p.m. – So the Bucs will be down Pro Bowl wide receiver Chris Godwin. Now Bucs fans have to be worried about another receiver’s availability.

Per Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Bucs quarterback Tom Brady’s new BFF, Scotty Miller, is not at practice this morning.

The Bucs will update what is going on with Miller when Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians speaks later this afternoon. Hopefully, he just had a dentist appointment or had to close on a new condo or something like that.

If the Bucs are down Godwin and Miller, that is not good news. Miller leads the Bucs in receiving yards. You can be sure Mike Evans will get blanketed by the Chargers.

Good news here for the Bucs is that the Chargers are down two starters in their secondary, Chris Harris and Derwin James — Derwin James!

Justin Watson is back at practice for the Bucs.

Addendum: Jenna Laine of ESPN reports that cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting is not practicing either, however his status for Sunday’s game against the Chargers, she writes, is still unknown.

    I liked d.J but man it seems like the guy is always injured glad we went with vea

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Time for others to step up…..hopefully, they are simply resting Scotty’s groin/hammy……
    Time for TJ……

    It wont shock me if the kid out of Minnesota has a big game. Brady will take what the defense gives and my guess is Evans gets doubled, Gronk/TEs get attention….leaving the rookie in one on one. RBs should also have some space to move the chains. With Brady running things, the offense creates a pick your poison scenario for the defense. Teams cant simply dare Brady to throw the way they did with Winston. That formula wont work….Brady will find the open player and manage the game properly.

    Time for Justin Watson and Tyler Johnson to get some snaps and produce. Maybe we rely on the TEs and RBs (catch as well as run) more as well.

    Why do you call the GOAT??

    park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Bucs quarterback Tom Brady’s


  6. Sport Says:

    Paul, I know you bother some of the other posters with your consistency, but I appreciate it. I wonder if Joe picked up this bad habit in school, when the teacher told you how many words you had to write, he would go all Peter King on it to get his word count.

    You can always tell which Joe wrote the article, the other Joe doesn’t do that crap. Oh, and thankfully neither does Intern Zack, who has a solid writing style btw.

    Time for TU to get going. I think Watson is approaching journeyman status.

    Go Bucs!

    In BA In Trust!

    the players have to remain focused all 60mins of the game…..

    no drops…4 penalties or less….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  8. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    Don’t encourage him Paul!

  9. ItzOK Says:

    Sign Antonio Brown now.
    Better to have talent on the shelf when you need then to need it and not have it. Salary isn’t guaranteed and he sits out for 8 weeks nice insurance policy.

  10. Fernando Diaz Says:

    Next man up simple as that

  11. The Graham Tram Says:

    Brady will have to put a little more mustard on his balls to Cyril Grayson to make sure they stick in his facemask

  12. Paul Says:

    Thanx SPORT!

    I just do not see and never will the reason for the Disrespect when TB may prove to be the best thing that has ever happened to our Bucs. Why Bad-mouth the GOAT? It’s your opinion that it’s a bad-mouth. Joe neither feels that way nor is trying to express that. Additionally, Joe doesn’t have fun with those adjectives on all posts, not even close. –Joe

    After 5 years of praising JW with a positive moniker and the Peter King BS waste of space crap, how could any regular reader with half a brain not notice the TB slant? Classless and Childish.

  13. Jmarkbuc Says:


    You should probably start your own website

  14. Colonel Angus Says:

    Sounds like a TE kind of day this Sunday. That and pound the hell out the rock.

  15. Paul Says:


    Just trying to keep it REAL.
    You think the TB stuff is Funny?
    You like the Peter King Moniker?
    Are you related to JOE?

  16. Steven007 Says:

    Paul/Sport, I feel your pain as I’ve said many times before. As for starting his own website J, nothing wrong with a little constructive criticism on a website that he clearly frequents. Comment cut here for misrepresentation of Joe’s beliefs and attitudes, a clear violation of the crimes against Joe policy. –Joe

  17. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    Next man up. The GOAT can make it work. Getting these guys some reps is not a bad thing.

  18. 40TDs Says:

    Folks Joe is running a business here! He is probably not a Bucs fan anyway.

    Lay off and go to some other website and stop trying to change his opinions.

    Go Bucs!!!

  19. Rod Munch Says:

    WR depth was the weakest part of this team, does anyone here even know who the #3 WR was at the end of last year? Tyler Johnson was a 5th rounder and people acted like he’d step in day one and be a started if needed.

    Arians needs to trade for someone, you can’t go “all-in” and start the Ryan Smith of the offense at WR (Watson).

    Here’s my idea, trade Brate to Jacksonville (they lost their starting TE) for Dede Westbrook who isn’t being used. Westbrook is coming off back to back seasons of 66 catches and would at least be an NFL level #3 or #4 WR. Also this could free up about $3m in salary. The Bucs could throw in a pick if they needed to.

    Licht needs to do something, or Arians needs to use the TEs a hell of a lot more.

  20. StatGuy Says:

    Time to bring back Spencer Schnell for a couple games, at least he can catch the ball. AB I don’t even think has been cleared by the league. Demarious Thomas and Jermaine Kearse are teamless

  21. JimmyJack Says:

    Rod youre worried over nothing. We got an ace in the hole……Spencer Schnell!!

  22. JimmyJack Says:

    See just like that. Multiple fans clammoring for Schnell…..You cant stop a train baby.

  23. IrishMist Says:

    It looked like Miller slightly pulled something while being held going for a deep pass down the left sideline. Of course it wasn’t called.

  24. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Just keeping it real Huh?

    On a blog page Where everyone uses fake aliases, including Joe. Do I find Joe’s sarcasm funny? Meh. But it’s certainly his right to write what he wants, and irk people if he so desires. What’s really annoying is you whining about it every day.

    In the grand scheme of things it’s not that big a deal. I think we all know Tom Brady is great and Jameis Winston wasn’t. It’s called sarcasm. Just think of Joe as drunk uncle if it makes you feel better.

    Who made you the Joe Bucs fan police?

  25. Dapostman Says:


    Joe is a schewed business man. He does it to trigger snowflakes like yourself. He needs you to post and check in. That’s why there are still Winston articles. No one brings the comments like Jameis Winston.

    It ain’t rocket science.

  26. Brandon Says:

    Queue the fanboys of Spencer Schnell and Antonio Brown. Y’all gotta be kidding. We’ve got two actual receivers on the practice squad that would get called up way before Schnell sees our roster again.

    For those that don’t know, Miller went into the last game nursing hamstring/groin injuries.

  27. Jason From Jamrock Says:

    in my humble opinion, the name prefixes before Tom Brady is NOT a slight or disrespect of TB12, it IS some NOTABLE moments he has had since choosing to come to Tampa.
    Go BUCS!!!
    Cherishing the W’s!

  28. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyJack – Is Schnell even on the practice squad? Where do we even find the practice squad info? It’s such a screwed up year it’s hard to keep up with who is around and who isn’t.

  29. Lakewood Ranch Phil Says:

    Am i the only one that saw the photo and thought it looked like Johnny Manziel?

    Joe, when are you going to have a contest with the prize visiting joe bucs fan headquarters?

  30. Paul Says:


    Agreed-it is annoying when you see the same schtick thing printed repeatedly. It’s Classless and Childish. Just like you get annoyed on my comments-my point exactly.

    Who made you the Joe Bucs Fan police one should ask?

  31. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Ndog likes your style.. he’s looking for your number. You two should get together and repeat foolish nonsense to each other.

    Like Dapostman said…it’s clickbait, fool.

    STfU about it or talk yourself to death….I really don’t care.
